Lack’s new design features not only the Hurricanes’ logos, but the Swedish Chef from The Muppets!
“Eddie likes food, and especially tacos!” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “So the Swedish Chef has always showed up on the back of his masks. This time the Swedish Chef shows up on the mask itself! Ready to fix some tacos for Eddie! … And on the backplate of the mask another buddy of Eddie’s shows up.”
The backplate caricature of former Canucks teammate Roberto Luongo is unlikely to come as a surprise to fans, as the pair have maintained a close friendship since the Team Canada netminder was traded to Florida in 2014. It doesn’t show up in the photo below, but in the video forwarded to InGoal by Lack, you see his father is also on the backplate.
